“TVo is really close to her mum and dad and, her father, in some ways, is vulnerable to something like the coronavirus.

“So, she was really keen to get back and spend some more time with them.”

“He does fall into that vulnerable category during this time – if he were to get [coronavirus], it would be pretty dire,” Tracy told Nine last month.

 

Thommo said that was one of the original reasons why she came back from the east four or five years ago.

“She’s back and it’s great, I mean, she’s going to miss the Today show, but this is what coronavirus has done.

“People have to make decisions and she wanted to come home and be close to her mum and dad.”
